What I would have expected is for any moderator to not make posts belittling people and not join in on the disgusting and nasty and mean posting of demeaning type of posts. I expected better of moderators but it seems some, not all of course but some, are no better than many others within the political threads. I thought better but I have been shown that some of the moderators maybe should think a bit more before they make posts.

NO. My comment in no way reflects my opinion of people in SW Missouri. My comment about the white sheet was in reference to the person posting all those racist and RACE-Baiting pictures of Obama. They accomplish the exact same thing as the bill board.
Were you talking about this one.......? American Hero vs. far left radical closet muslim? These imaged were not altered in any way... Any conclusions about these portraits are ones that you make yourself.

I don't know what you are getting at, at all with what you posted but here is some info for a place in NM and it isn't much different except that they have more unemployment here.


[LEFT]For population 25 years and over in Chaparral[/LEFT]
  • High school or higher: 57.9%
  • Bachelor's degree or higher: 10.2%
  • Graduate or professional degree: 3.2%
  • Unemployed: 12.9%
  • Mean travel time to work: 32.4 minutes
So, what did the both of us prove? Not a darn thing. I did want to let everyone know that any one can post infor about any place in the country and find some of the same educational abilities and such.

Racism my a$$!!! This is the total truth. If you are un-happy your candidate has been exposed for what he is, a radical Commie, then head to Kenya. You will feel at home there.

Here is the billboard:

Important thing to remember: Free Speech is also about tolerating what you disagree with. I disagree with anti-Christian rants, yet I have to tolerate it and respond with speech, because that is what Free Speech is all about.

Funny, I only hear Liberals want to shut down people whom they disgaree with, like Pelosi, Boxer, and Feinstein talking about ways to shut down talk radio.

What I think is funny is how liberal Dems, or many people who are for Obama, think that they are so much better than anyone who happens to be against Obama. Obama followers have followed Obama with their disdain of people who do not happen to think the way they do or have supposed education they do or any number of other things. It is sickening. I will tell you this, most people who get college degrees these days are far LESS educated than the people who got them 40 years and more ago. Just look at colleges these days. They even have to have remedial classes because so many get to college and really don't even have the basic English or math skills necessary for college. Hell, I have run in to far too many college degreed people who can't even make change.

We can't legislate class.
You are correct. I mean, all one has to do is look at so many of the people that post within the political forums here and how many of them say the nasty and disgusting things they say. Gotta love a country that allows such ignorance to be the right of anyone who wishes to show their low class.

Not withstanding the fact that Lincoln himself was a racist! Gotta love people who knows so little about a favored President.
